Review: The Forever Song
The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Allison Sekemoto has given up on being a good vampire. After being turned, she tried relentlessly to keep her humanity within herself. Now Sarren has killed the love of her life, Zeke, and Allison has embraced her monster in order to hunt down and kill Sarren. As she continues to follow Sarren, she discovers the path is leading straight to Eden, the last vampire-free zone left on Earth. She is not alone. Her creator, Kanin, and Jackal, her blood brother, have joined her on this quest. Can they reach Sarren before Eden is destroyed? Will Allison be able to overcome the shocking truths that Sarren has in store for her?
The Forever Song is the third and final book in the Blood of Eden series. Readers who were disturbed with the characters killed off in the last book will find new twists and turns in this next volume. Kagawa will not disappoint readers with the fast paced style and they will remember that these three books span about one year of Allison’s life. As a series finale I found that the larger questions were all answered, yet Kagawa left a few openings for short stories or a spin off series in the future. The Forever Song is a satisfying read and a great conclusion.
